Summary
A psychiatrist suggests ways in which confronting and resolving problems, a painful process most people try to avoid, can lead to greater self-understanding and spiritual growth. Life is difficult he says, and the journey to spiritual growth is a long one. Here he helps us explore the very loving nature of relationships and leads us toward a new serenity and fullness of life. He helps us learn how to distinguish dependency from love, how to become a more sensitive parent, and ultimately how to become one's own true self.
